I studied graphic design in high school back in Tehran. Then I switched to studying painting for college both in Tehran and Rome, followed by jewelry design and gemology in Venice! I started making clothes for myself five years ago only because I wanted to wear something that's unique, comfortable and colorful. A combination that could be quite challenging to find growing up in Iran! Surprisingly enough, I got quite a lot of compliments on my designs and this led me to start my own underground avant-garde line of clothing and made this a full time career out of my little studio apartment. Hanieh is very admired among Tehranians for its creative designs. I work in Tehran, Italy and soon London.
